    I'm using 1.1 framework and IE 6.0. A form within a user control
    generates the following doPostBack method. The control ID of the form
    is not a valid javascript variable name, ie
    UserProjectDataEntry1:EnterPeriodTime. When the page is loaded, I get a
    runtime error when it parses the following line.

    theform = document.UserProjectDataEntry1:EnterPeriodTime;

    This used to work on the 1.0 framework. Any ideas?

    function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) {
    var theform;
    if (window.navigator.appName.toLowerCase().indexOf("netscape") > -1) {
    theform = document.forms["UserProjectDataEntry1:EnterPeriodTime"];
    else {
    theform = document.UserProjectDataEntry1:EnterPeriodTime;
    theform.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget.split("$").join(":");
    theform.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;
